Bush regeneration groups are run by volunteers and welcome new members. Click on the name of the group for contact information, meeting location and times. No need to commit to every month, come along when you can, even if it is only for an hour or two and socialise in our beautiful surroundings as you weed and plant and do your bit for our local environment.
Catherine Park, Scotland Island
Catherine Park is a community focal point. Our focus is maintaining the beauty of the surrounding bushland and restoring habitat for wildlife. In Catherine Park we have restored the foreshore edge, controlled invasive weeds and planted local native plants for habitat. Volunteering is an opportunity to learn, contribute and socialise with neighbours.
|First Sunday of the month, usually from 9:30 am – 11:30 am||Meet near the telephone box coming up from Tennis Wharf.|
Contact Sharon (details above in drop down) to find out more and to be added to the email list.
Rocky Point, Lovett Bay
Rocky Point Bushcare group was set up in 2003 by local residents and weekenders keen to restore local pockets of degraded public land to their natural state. The group is supported by Council’s Bushcare program providing an experienced bush regenerator to work with the group. Over the years the bushcare team have witnessed the slow but purposeful regeneration of the native forest on Rocky Point, The Circle and more recently at the southern end of Lovett Bay Beach. The group meets on the first Monday of each month at 0930. All newcomers welcome.
|First Monday of the month, from 9:30 am – 12 pm||Meet at the Rocky Point entrance, top of Sturdee Lane|
|Third Saturday of each month, from 1:30 pm||Contact Lisa for location details.||Lisa Atkins|
